Alfred Tabor, born at Trent, in Middlesex, on February 24, 1850, died at Eastbourne on December 16, 1925. Scores and Biographies said of him: As a batsman, he is a steady and careful player, remaining a long while at the wickets for his runs, while in the field he is good everywhere. He took great pains while at Harrow, and paid every attention to his instructors, improving rapidly under able tuition. He was a member of the Harrow XI in 1868, when, by his innings of 38 (top score) and 14, he contributed much to his side's success over Eton by seven wickets. In 1866-7 he was in the School Football XI. He did not obtain his Blue for Cambridge, although quite a useful player, but, appearing for Middlesex against Surrey at the Oval, in 1872, he scored 7 and 42. His career in important cricket was very short, as from 1873 until 1890 he was coffee-planting in Ceylon. For many years he scored well for Dikoya and Up-Country teams, and he also captained the Ceylon sides which visited Calcutta in 1884-5 and played Mr. G. F. Vernon's team in 1889-90. He was brother of Mr. R. M. Tabor of the Eton XI of 1864 and of Mr. A. S. Tabor who played three years (1869-71) for Eton and three (1872-74) for Cambridge.
